What’s Latin for Michigan?

Do you like peninsulas? We got peninsulas!

If you live in Michigan, let me apologize ahead of time. Sorry.

Yesterday my 9-year-old son had his nose in an almanac. He was reading facts about the states.

“This state’s state bird is this … that state’s state tree is that … the other state’s flower is some other thing.”

Nice. Nice.

“Michigan’s state motto is:
If you are seeking a pleasant peninsula, look around you.

Of course they say it in Latin:
Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circum spice.
